The Boulders of Copernicus

"This image represents a portion of the central uplift within the crater Copernicus. The image, LOV-152-H1, was taken by Lunar Orbiter V on 16 August 1967 at an altitude of 103 km. The spacecraft was looking straight down at the crater as it snapped this picture series. The resolution of this image is 2.2 meters/pixel. You can see the increase in contrast and resolution that LOIRP has attained when you compare the high resolution USGS image and the one obtained by LOIRP on 10 December 2009." High res images
